Although fancy dinners or cute dates to the park are a great way to learn about someone, nothing compares to the strange quirks that come out during pillow talk. After getting it done, people are usually open to feeling vulnerable and aren’t inhibited to talk about their hopes, dreams, and what their favorite boy band was in the 5th grade.
If you’re ready to spill your guts, or learn about how strange your partner really is, pillow talk is definitely the right time to bring it up. Here are 24 things you only learn about someone during pillow talk.
